We’ve frequently said that the likes of Kia and Hyundai are becoming increasingly formidable and if a report from Autocar is anything to go by, Kia are stepping up to the mark sooner rather than later!
The new Coupe rumoured to be called the Kia GT may debut later this year, blazing the trail for other GT-badged vehicles from the Korean marque, including a hot flavour of the Kia Rio.
Kia first made a serious statement of intent during the 2014 Detroit auto show, when the radical GT4 Stinger concept car emerged. Promises of a rear wheel drive, turbocharged, 315 horsepower, 2 litre, 4 cylinder platform indicated Kia’s interests in emerging as more than just a budget car pusher. And frankly, whilst some refinement would go a long way to giving it the polished, aggressive look of a mustang or a GTR, you can’t help but admire the out of the box approach, reaching out to a new demographic of affordable performance punters.
